Reception: Thursday, February 9, 6 - 8pm
School of Visual Arts (SVA) presents "Print Settings," an exhibition of printmaking from students in the BFA Fine Arts Department. The exhibition was curated by faculty member Gunars Prande and features current students Theodore Boyer, M. Benjamin Herndon, Dominic Musa and Jill Pucciarelli.
Prande says, "'Print Settings' is an exhibition of work where repetition and variation are intrinsic to the process of printmaking. Employing the printed image as a starting point, something to react to and create, each artist adjusts the variations of printing by the augmentation of painting, experimental patinas and collage techniques."
The BFA Fine Arts Department at SVA prepares students to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing field head on. With a faculty of approximately 100 active artists, critics and curators, a distinguished roster of guest lecturers and various exhibition opportunities, the department offers direct and multifaceted engagement with the largest art community in the world. From course work in anatomy, figure drawing and color theory, to interdisciplinary workshops in digital and photo-based media, the curriculum provides the broadest possible means of expression. A digital lab with state-of-the art recording, editing and projection technology, fully-equipped printmaking facilities and sculpture studios with computerized (CNC) milling machines are among the department's many resources.
